Clay County leaves more positions unfilled

Email News Alerts

The vacancy rate in Clay County government is growing.

Since getting hit with cuts in state revenue, the county has been trying to hold off filling positions when they become vacant.


Before Tuesday, the county had about 12 positions unfilled.

The Clay County Commission approved spending cuts Tuesday that will leave another six full-time-equivalent positions vacant, and officials warned that future cutbacks in state aid will likely mean even deeper cuts in positions.
